The main reason why I write is because inside of me there is something inside of me that truly believes that I must express and share my ideas with others. To inspire others that they can live their dreams and live a happy life of their own vision. Writing is something I never truly enjoyed until my senior year of high school where I took a creative writing class. There is where I learned the true joys of writing. With no real syllabus and the ability to allow my imagination to run wild I discovered that writing was something that gave me a sense of fulfillment.
As the years went on I lost touch with this enjoyment for others dreams and ambitions that I was chasing for my life. When I was getting ready to quit my job and take the leap to start my own company I took a week off. During that week an idea hit me. I desired to write a book. I began to write a few paragraphs here and there but it was must on the shelf because of my new business.
Fast forward to now I was searching for my passion in life. I wasn’t satisfied with where I was and wanted to find something that would make me feel alive again. One night the universe decided to hand me a gift. It was a book that I found on amazon prime reading. Find your passion: 25 questions you must ask yourself by Henri Junttila. I was intrigued so I began immediately to read it. There was one question to ask yourself and the book recommended that you write out each of your answers. About halfway through the book I rediscovered my joy for writing. I made the decision that I would find a way to make it my life’s calling.
I dug out my old book notes that I had from years before and began to organize them into what I believe would be the best way to write the story. As I write this post I am currently in the process of continuing my work on that book and plan to publish it sometime next year. I have to say that I’m loving every minute that I work on it. It is such a release of positive energy and expression for something that I truly believe in my heart.
My personal reason for starting this blog was to share my ideas and insights that I’ve learned over the years. I love the genre of self-help and it has had a major impact upon the person that I am today. I was try to write from the deepest chambers of my heart and make sure to convey my message in the best way possible. I want to spark something within my readers to make them take action in the dreams they have within their minds. Dreams that cry for their realization. Life is just too short not to live your dreams and do something that you love to do.
I will admit that I am a bit rusty in my writing but I’m happy for that. It gives me room for growth and the ability to hone in on my writing style. As well as create a sharper focus for the message I want to deliver to my readers. The essence of life is growth and when we grow that is when we feel alive.
If you are a blogger or an author reading this I would like to know your reason for why you write. The beautiful thing about life is that we all have a story to tell and I would love to hear yours.
